Child education is a form of social and educational support for children, particularly disadvantaged children, to achieve a greater degree of self-sufficiency.
It also provides opportunities for learning, growth and development.
Child education is based on a concept of “family and community”.
As such, it is often viewed as providing a means for parents to take care of children, and provides a means of building self-esteem, development and self-confidence.
In India, the concept of child education is very much underdeveloped and it is a complex topic that requires more research and education to understand its significance.
The National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR), headed by retired Supreme Court judge P Sathasivam, has published the following statement on child education: “Child education does not mean a one-size-fits-all model of schooling.
Child education needs to be a comprehensive approach that includes all aspects of child development.
This will be possible if the government does not limit child education to a single child.”
Child Education in India The National Commission on Child Education (NCCE) in the country’s capital, New Delhi, has recently published a comprehensive report on child development and education, which has already been adopted by all states in the Union.
It was prepared in the context of the current socio-economic situation in India and is aimed at ensuring the social and economic well-being of children and their families.
It has highlighted the importance of a balanced educational environment for children.
According to the report, child education should be provided to all children irrespective of their social class, caste, language or socio-cultural background, and irrespective of age.
The report also recommends that parents should be able to take their children to school whenever they are ready, regardless of the socio-political and economic circumstances.
As the report highlights, it also recommends the establishment of an ‘educational fund’ for each child for the purpose of child-rearing.
There are a number of issues to consider when assessing the effectiveness of child educational programmes, including the role of government in providing and maintaining child welfare.
For instance, while parents should always have the right to provide their children with child education, it should be noted that child welfare is a major concern for many parents.
The NCCE report also emphasises that child education must be a national priority.
It is the responsibility of the states to ensure the provision of a range of child welfare programmes that can benefit the whole nation.

To address this issue, the NICHD recommended that the country should be prepared to invest more in the implementation of child health and development programs that address socio-emotional, behavioural and cognitive development, which can help improve the physical, social and psychological well- being of children.
In addition, the report emphasised the need for the development of a national system of child care.
The National Child Care Strategy (NCCS) is currently being implemented in many states.
However, there are many issues to take into account when evaluating the effectiveness and advisability of child social and developmental programmes.
While it is not feasible to compare all child welfare initiatives, there is a need for more attention being paid to child welfare through comprehensive evaluation of their impact.
On the other hand, it would be wrong to overlook the important role of education in children’s development, especially the need to provide opportunities for children to grow and develop.
